    B1G Over Signing
    -Example: If a team has 16 graduating seniors plus 2 open scholarships, then they would have 18 openings. The B1G would allow that team to then sign up to 21 prospects for their current recruiting class.

    Scholarship Limits
    1. 85 Roster Scholarship Limit
    2. Initial Counters
    3. Who Counts as an Initial Counter?
      1. Junior college transfer
      2. Four-year college transfer
      3. Graduate transfer
    4. Who Does Not Count as an Initial Counter

    Recruiting's Color Wheel
    1. Redshirt
    2. Greenshirt
      1. Example: Broc Bando, Tristan Gebbia, Keyshawn Johnson Jr, Jaevon McQuitty, and Avery Roberts enrolled a semester early for the spring term in 2017.
    3. Grayshirt
      1. Example: Jacob Hickman signed with the 2005 class. He joined the team a semester late in December 2005 for Alamo Bowl practices.
      2. **David Sutton committed to Nebraska for the 2011 class as a grayshirt. A scholarship came open during the summer allowing him to enroll on time.
      3. **Braylon Heard (class of 2010, but enrolled in 2011) and Charles Jackson (class of 2011, but enrolled in 2012) could be considered grayshirts. But that was more to do with academics than being a planned grayshirt.
    4. Blueshirt
      1. Example: Andy Janovich walked onto the team in 2012. He earned a scholarship prior to his true sophomore season in 2013. Not sure if he was recruited with the idea of being a blueshirt. He basically became one after being placed on scholarship after one year though.
    Preferred Walk-On vs. Walk-On
    1. Example: Coach Riley announced 9 preferred walk-ons with the 2016 recruiting class. The nine were: Ty Chaffin, Creighton Hamik, Tanner Hass, Branden Hohenstein, Todd Honas, Tavlin Hunt, Grant Jordan, Spencer Jordan, and Eli Sullivan.
    2. Example: After school started, Nebraska added five regular walk-ons to the 2016 roster. Sean Lambert, Ne'Land Smith, Jake Kitten, JUCO Matt Watts, and Isaac Armstrong.



    Medical Hardship vs. Medical Exemption
    1. Medical Hardship (aka Medical Redshirt)
      1. Example: Ndamukong Suh played in the first two games of the 2005 season before undergoing knee surgery. He received a medical redshirt for that season and became a redshirt freshman for the 2006 season.
    2. Medical Exemption
      1. Example: Kody Spano was a 2008 QB recruit. He suffered a serious shoulder injury in May 2011 before his redshirt junior season. He retired from the game and was classified as a medical exemption in order to remain with the team and keep his scholarship.

    I planned too. He and I discussed this (his idea) by PM the last day or two.

    Great idea by the way

    Can you lock it so that the OP doesn't get lost in thread pages?
